Topic: CKEditor license

Has anyone used CKEditor? I am trying to understand their Open Source license in regards to for profit. If I understand correctly if I want to use the editor on sites that I create for my clients I need to pay a license. correct?

Hi Helmut,

From what I read on their website, I believe you need to pay for a license. Seems that the $850 license allows CKEditor to be "used inside pages of all web sites owned or produced by your company."

Seems pretty expensive!  Is it something that it does that something like NotePad++ doesn't?  Or some other free source editor?  Just curious.  Thanks!

Re: CKEditor license

This is an old thread, but just so any readers are aware, CKEditor has a triple-opensource licensing to ensure that it can be compatible with just about any license. There is no fee needed for incorporating in a site you develop at a fee for a client! Note that one of the purposes CKEditor has in the licensing arrangement is to make possible:

"Integrating CKEditor in commercial software, taking care of satisfying the Open Source licenses terms, while not able or interested on supporting CKEditor and its development."

Hope that helps!
